    Good find of patterns and repetitions. I especially like the atmospheric perspective in the layers of fading grey treelines

    This almost looks like two separate photos since the trees are so blurred. However I like the contrast and would love to see an even closer view of the trees in the mist or maybe fog would be a better word.

    Surreal composition and layout! Like the contrast in the foreground. One of my favorites!

Nothing done to add that look to the trees. Had to add a fair share of contrast because of the light.

    LaRee, the mist was lifting and the light was very bad. The trees were still holding a good deal of mist and I considered sharpening but decided against it.

Stunning landscape. great contrast on the lead in lines to the misty tree in the distance.

    My favorite - not sure why. It's got a barren, desolate feel to it. Human order contrasted with Nature's random patterns. The dreamy background blur is very nice - not sure if it's done in post processing or not - and it doesn't matter. Good work!

    This really caught my eye. Scores very high in my voting.

I like the repeating rows and the bright/dark contrast in the field. The trees against the grey sky just top it all off.

    Love your composition on this, love the lines leading to the background. Pity the trees have turned to mush!

    Made me look at it again and again, somewhere between a photo and a painting, very atmospheric and beautifully done - one of the best!

    Not bad but I feel the field is a little shallow in depth though I doubt there is much you could do about that.

    A very interesting study in lines and texture. Was the fog really abrupt along the treeline the way it looks here? The trees look almost smudged.
